These are bits in # the merge entry whose value can be set (by removing entries from the # merge) to avoid covering the covered entry. Whenever we have multiple # covered entries we care only about the entries with the fewest number of # ``settable`` bits because these most constrain which entries we may # remove from the merge to avoid covering up the lower entry. # # NOTE: # * If there is only 1 ``settable`` bit then we are very constrained in # terms of which entries must be removed from the merge to avoid # covering a lower entry. # * If there are no ``settable`` bits then we cannot possibly avoid # covering the lower entry - the only correct action is to return an # empty merge. # # Assuming that there were no covered entries without any ``settable`` bits # (that is ``stringency > 0``) then ``bits_and_vals`` contains pairs of # bits and boolean values which indicate which values need to be removed # from which bit positions to avoid covering up lower entries. If the # example above were the only covered entry then ``bits_and_vals`` would # contain ``(m, True)`` to indicate that all entries containing Xs or 1s in # the left-most bit of interest could be removed to avoid the covered entry # and ``(n, False)`` to indicate that all entries containing Xs or 0s in # the right-most bit of interest could be removed to avoid covering the # entry. # # NOTE: # ``bits_and_vals`` consists of a set of options (e.g., we *could* remove # all entries with Xs or 1s in bit ``m`` *or* we could remove all entries # with Xs or 0s in bit ``n``, either would resolve the above covering). # # To determine which course of action to take we build a dictionary mapping # each of the pairs in ``bits_and_vals`` to the entries that would need to # be removed to "set" that bit in the merged entry. For example, we might # end up with: # # options = {(m, True): {1, 4, 5}, # (n, False): {3, 7}} # # Indicating that we'd need to remove entries 1, 4 and 5 from the merge to # "set" the mth bit of the merged to 0 or that we'd need to remove entries # 3 and 7 to set the nth bit of the merged entry to set the nth bit to 1. # # NOTE: # The boolean part of the pair indicates which value needs to be removed # (True -> remove all 1s and Xs; False -> remove all 0s and Xs).
